Bible’s Most Asked Questions #3: What fruit did Eve eat?

Everybody knows the story of Adam and Eve and how they had to leave the beautiful Garden of Eden because of sin. And everyone knows the name of the fruit that they ate of, right?

Wrong!

Over the years, I’ve seen people argue over which fruit Eve ate and while many assume that it’s a pomegranate; almost the entire world would tell you that it’s an apple. We can also thank the movies for this. Why argue when you can pick up the Bible and read the truth?

Let’s consult our Bible:

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Genesis 3:6 (KJV)

The Bible did not mention that the forbidden fruit was an apple, pear, pomegranate, or orange for that matter. It was a fruit that came from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and we don’t know what it looked like, either. And because Eve failed to focus on her relationship with God, she fell victim to sweet talk from the devil’s sugar coated tongue. Next Sabbath, God’s willing, I hope we can dive into the fall of man.

Don’t let the devil cheat you out of your victory like he did Eve and Adam. Keep your eyes on God.

  1. Truth!!! Honestly, and I don’t care what people think haha because this is such a small detail 🙂 I once watched a documentary and based on the location where the garden of Eden may have been, they concluded a fig was most likely what grew in the region. I find that interesting. Considering we know there was an abundance of trees, and like you said, a very particular tree in general, who knows. 🙂 I’ve heard women joke..”Well, it must have been covered in chocolate.”

    1. They need to stop. If God did not say what the fruit was, there is no need for us to speculate. Chocolate? They think it was the Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory or something? 😄

  2. ‘Keep your eyes in God’. That statement made me think of the song ‘Fix my eyes on you by For Kings And Country’. I love that! 👏

      1. I’ll be honest with you: I don’t listen to rock or pop or contemporary gospel although I still like some of Michael W. Smith’s songs.
